First Round of General Election Endorsements

mdlcvendorsed2010CROPED We have released our first round of endorsed candidates for the 2014 state general elections! Along with the 98 endorsed candidates that won their primary, the new round includes 1 Senate and 9 House of Delegates candidates who are committed to action on environmental issues and ready to lead Maryland in making the environment a priority.

“As in the primary elections, the Maryland League of Conservation Voters’ goal is to persuade voters to support the best environmental candidates. We know this is even more important in open seats where candidates may not have established records,” said Chuck Porcari, Political Committee Chair of Maryland LCV’s Board.  “Voters may not have the time or resources to interview each candidate and review positions on environmental issues, but they can rely on the Maryland League of Conservation Voters to do that for them."

More endorsements will be released in the coming weeks and months, with more rounds before the November 4th General election. Please follow us on twitter @MDLCV and the hashtag #MDVotesGreen2014 for more up to date environmental endorsements.
